From 1988 to 1995, he was with the School of Electrical Engineering at Southwest Jiaotong University, where his research interests were in the areas of modelling and simulation of large dynamic systems, dynamic process simulation of electrified railways, power electronics, power systems, and power system harmonics. From 1995 to 1999, Dr. Li involved into the research areas of renewable energies, neural networks, and applications of massively parallel processing. He was with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Texas A&M University - Kingsville from 1999 to 2006. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Alabama in 2006. Dr. Li is a member of IEEE and a member of ASME.

Brad Love

sample-image Brad Love is Professor of Cognitive and Decision Sciences at UCL and an inaugural Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK's national institute for data science. He is also an APS, ELLIS, and Wolfson fellow. His work lies at the intersection of Neuroscience, Experimental Psychology, and Machine Learning. He has made contributions in linking models of cognition to brain function, and to using large real-world datasets to understand human behaviour. His current focus is making deep learning approaches more consistent with human behavioural and brain measures to increase the robustness of models and make them more faithful accounts of human cognition. For example, work in his lab seeks to incorporate top-down, goal-directed attentional mechanisms into convolutional networks to improve model correspondence with human behaviour and brain activity. Another project aims to interface brain measures with networks to better understand how brain regions correspond to parts of networks and to pave the way for better brain machine interfaces.
